It isn’t absurd, e.g., to believe that the age of science
and technology is the beginning of the end for humanity.

Southbound Visions: Welcoming South Asian Culture Studies to Asia

Sunday, April 16, 2017

For many decades the predominant academic envisioning of South Asian literary and cultural forms has been undertaken through the theoretical glasses of postcolonial, diaspora, and “ethnic” studies. South Asian literary studies as undertaken by the majority of scholars in the West continues to emphasize the works of Commonwealth artists and authors of South Asian heritage writing from within the West, such as Salman Rushdie, V.S. Naipaul, and Jhumpa Lahiri. This remains true as well for scholars and critics in Southeast and East Asia whose proximity to the South Asian subcontinent might naturally encourage their interest, such as those writing from universities in urban centers of learning such as Singapore, Tokyo, Seoul, and Taipei.

Small Islands?Transnational Solidarity in Contemporary Literature and Arts

Editors for this issue: Rita Monticelli and Lorenzo Mari

 

While revising her ground-breaking essay titled “Under Western Eyes” (1986) for Feminism Without Borders. Decolonizing Theory, Practicing Solidarity (2003), Chandra Talpade Mohanty suggested that, however difficult, the conversation between Euro-American, postcolonial and other feminist traditions still envisions the “practice of solidarity” – rather than of “sisterhood” or other related terms – as a specific, transnational form of “anticapitalist struggle”.

Minnesota Writing and English Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, January 28, 2017

   The annual Minnesota Writing and English Conference(MNWE) will be held at Southwest Minnesota State University, Marshall, Minnesota on March 31, 2017-April 1, 2017. The theme  of the conference is "Connecting Landscapes." Our age of globalization and  virtual communities can obscure the reality that we are all literally grounded in our landscapes, our locales and institutional sites. MnWE's theme, Connecting Landcapes, invites us to consider the most fruitful ways of connecting geographical and metaphorical landscapes. As English educators, we speak of discovering "where we stand" on issues, of being "moved" by words and images, and of using languagae to change others' positions and points of view and create movement.

Literature, being a creative universal form of expression, addresses spiritual, emotional and social concerns of humanity. It is known that there are reciprocal relations between literature and religion, still the question of how these two disciplines interact with each other invites fresh thought. Looking at the past of English Literature, it is abundantly clear that critics even before Mathew Arnold have referred back to form and content of religious scriptures.

It will focus on a range of issues related to the creation, reception, study, translation and marketing of these forms of expression. Whereas on the one hand New Zealand and Pacific arts are being created and circulated as deriving from culturally specific locations, they have also been received, translated, taught and marketed as part of the more broadly defined category of ‘world’ culture.
